Motorola starts soak test for the Moto X Pure Edition Android 6.0 Marshmallow update
A couple of weeks ago, David Schuster, Motorola's Senior Director of Software Product Management, announced that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition is on its way. Today, Schuster announced that Motorola has started the soak test for the update. 

Last month, reports revealed that some Motorola Moto X Pure Edition units started receiving their Marshmallow update. Initially, it was believed that Motorola was rolling out the soak test, but Motorola's David Schuster refuted this idea, claiming that it was just a simple test-drive. This time around, however, the real soak test has begun.

If everything goes according to Motorola's plan, a full launch will follow shortly. In theory, this should mean that the Moto X Pure Edition will start receiving its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in a matter of weeks.

As many probably know already, the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition is little else than the US version of the international Moto X Style. This international variant of the phone has already started receiving its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in some corners of the world.

Compared to Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is the Android version that the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition currently uses, the 6.0 Marshmallow version of Google's mobile OS comes with significant improvements such as the new Google Now on Tap, a granular permission model, improved volume controls, as well as a smart battery saving feature called Doze.
